    For me, this was an absolutely traumatizing film. Like go-straight-to-therapy traumatizing.
    Call me heartless or unsympathetic, but as much as I liked the movie overall, the son's constant "Poppa!! Poppa!!" got to be very annoying.

    I also liked Dallas buyers club.

    I liked American hustle. Great costumes, music, and when I would see things it would bring back memories from my childhood. Like when we got our first microwave.

    Actually, I've seen that commentary a lot. For some reason, it didn't bother me. As a father with a son that age, the movie was like an existential punch in the solar plexus. Seeing Mortenson's unconditional, desperate love for, and desire to protect, his son was amazing. I don't know why I haven't picked up on that kind of vibe in other movies, but for me I felt like I finally saw someone representing the way I feel about my son. The scene in the cannibal's house, and what Mortenson considers doing for a split second, blew me away. I'll never forget it. That being said, I am VERY easily emotionally manipulated by movies.

    I know what you mean, Mo. Ever since I became a parent there are movies I absolutely can't take anymore. Hell, I even cry or panic at the dumbest things and what ifs. I don't think I will be watching The Road anytime soon.

    I'm a very easy touch for emotional movies, but anything where something happens to a kid or they lower their parent are just killers. These movies were particularly rough:

    1. Bridge to Terabithia (based on a true story that took place near where I grew up)
    2. Grave of the Fireflies (saddest cartoon - EVER - and based on a true story in Post WWII Japan)
    3. Dead Poets Society (the scene with Kurtwood Smith)

    The Budapest Hotel. I loved it, mostly because Ralph Fiennes was fucking hilarious. I loved loved loved him in it.

    The Ice Storm. Really enjoyed this one.

    Muppets Most Wanted. It was okay. Not as good as the last one.
    I think I need to watch this one again. I saw it when it was in the theaters and I think I was too young or just not in the mood.

    As for The Road, that movie is so depressing. The problem with the son is the actor. He's young and I think it's heavy material for a young actor to be able to accurately portray. Very few child actors can really act in drama's where there really isn't any break in the horror and depression. It's a movie that stays with you and really does make you consider therapy to forget it

    Well fortunately I have zero affection for children, so I can watch naked Viggo without distraction

    Fast forward about 3/4 of the way in. It will be a scene on a beach, and they are scavenging a ship off shore for supplies.

    The book killed me. Stayed with me for weeks causing depression and an annoying (to my kid) need to hug my kid. Brilliant book. I can't bring myself to watch the movie. I think it would do me in.

    The Talented Mr. Ripley

    It wasn't nearly as good as I had remembered it being.

    Matt Damon just seems at times wrong for the part of Tom Ripley. Jude Law was great as Dickie Greenleaf.

    Yes, I have, and I liked it. It came and went so fast in the theaters.

    Seeing it this weekend! Cannot wait. I just re-watched Moonrise Kingdom this weekend. Love Wes!

    I just watched Delivery Man. It was ok. I love Vince Vaughn but he must be getting slim pickings these days. Chris Pratt was pretty funny though.

    I sometimes think that guys like Vaughn, and Kevin James, et. al., are randomly browsing through some book of job classifications and making movies about them - delivery man, mall cop, intern, gym owner, zookeeper. I love both of them, though.
